DWAIN CHAMBERS will use this year’s Olympics as a chance to prepare for next season – although he will not be running.
The 30-year-old last week lost his appeal against a British Olympic Association bylaw which bans him from competing in all future Games.
Chambers, who served a two-year suspension after failing a drugs test in 2003, had hoped to win an injunction at the High Court which would enable him to run at Beijing next month.
While he will not travel to China next month, the Belgrave Harrier has not given up on competing at London 2012, saying he is a “born runner.”
Chambers will be eligible for next year’s World Championships in Berlin as the ban only applies to Olympics and he admits he will be watching the action in Beijing with one eye on his rivals.
